The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA): A Cutting-Edge Way for Students and Teachers to Learn about Antarctica
Campbell, Brian; Bindschadler, Robert
Science Teacher, v76 n1 p34-40 Jan 2009
By studying Antarctica via satellite and through ground-truthing research, we can learn where the ice is melting and why. The Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA), a new and cutting-edge way for scientists, researchers, educators, students, and the public to look at Antarctica, supports this research and allows for unprecedented views of our coldest and driest landmass. This article discusses LIMA, presents two LIMA-based classroom activities, and calls for science teachers to create additional related activities for classrooms around the world. (Contains 4 figures.)
